The Truth About Rachel by Deanna Lynn Sletten
Women's Crime Fiction, 158 pages
Published May 11, 2021 by Deanna Lynn Sletten

Everyone believes Rachel is dead. But she’s very much alive.

Rachel Scott Emery’s life unravels when she comes upon an old news article online that states she was killed thirty-five years ago at the age of eight. Even more shocking is her murderer was her then sixteen-year-old brother.

Realizing she must untangle the mess, Rachel leaves her Tallahassee, Florida home and goes back to Casita, California to prove she is still alive. But going home again isn’t easy. Believing that her parents had relinquished custody of her years ago to her beloved aunt and uncle, she slowly learns what really happened. And unearthing the truth, when so many in town want to leave it buried, becomes a daunting and dangerous task. 

What really happened the day little Rachel left town? And who is the little girl buried in the grave?

My thoughts about The Truth About Rachel ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"August 1985. Rachel pushed back her long, dark hair as she concentrated on braiding a friendship bracelet."

Wow! I loved this story! I've been a huge fan of Deanna's for years and I've loved all of her books. When I found out she was branching out and trying her hand at writing a mystery, I was excited to see what she had created. Once again, she has written a winner!

I really liked the Rachel character in this story and boy does she have to go through a lot. She's basically living her best life when she finds out that she was 'murdered' thirty-five years ago. What the heck?

Uncovering the truth of her past is the driving force in the story and you will relish the twists that Rachel discovers as she tries to get to the bottom of things. Who does she believe? Who can she trust?

And I love how there are still questions to be answered at the end and that the possibilities in Rachel's life are wide open—that means that there'll be more to come. That's right, Deanna plans to make this a series and I, for one, am super excited about that!

I highly recommend The Truth About Rachel—publication date May 11, 2021. It's the perfect start to what I hope is a long, exciting series!

I received an ARC of The Truth About Rachel from the author and this is my honest opinion.
